The UK Announces New Salary Cap For Tier 2 Visa

01 Apr 2016


new Salary Cap for Tier 2 visa

United Kingdom Government has responded to the suggestions made by the Migration Advisory Committee (MAC). The MAC advises the Government on migration trends and the limitations to put on the migration flow into the country. The committee suggested the salary cap of 35000 pounds to the tier 2 visa annually; this move opposed by the industrial sectors relying on the migrant workers with Tier 2 visas.

Considering the request from all the sections of the industries, United Kingdom has announced significant changes to the immigration procedures related to Tier 2 visas:

New Tier 2 visa rules:

•    Health care professionals and academic professionals in teaching exempted from salary caps.

•    The new applicants will have the salary cap of 20,800 pounds.

•    The new salary cap of 25000 pounds has been fixed for Tier 2 visa, and that would be active from the autumn. For the same new cap of 30,000 pounds would be applicable from April 2017.

•    Students with Tier 4 visas can switch to UK Tier 2 visas without any labor market test.

•    Nurses are on the skills shortage list, employers recruiting nurses from non-European countries must carry out labor market test.

•    Skill charges apply to the employers hiring foreign nationals under Tier 2 visa category.
